This is a newbie friendly swap. It should be extremely easy to do as long as you follow the guidelines below. Experienced swappers are also welcome.

Choose three different things from the list below and send to your partner before the deadline.

1 unused notecard with envelope

10 stickers (can be a sheet, or loose, none smaller than a US penny)

1 unused postcard

2 handmade envelopes

1 foreign coin or paper money

3 washi tape samples (at least 12 in. each wrap around a playing card with packing tape or something similar for easy removal) or 1 roll of washi tape

2 pieces of ribbon at least 12 inches

1 bookmark

2 hot drink sachets (tea, coffee, hot chocolate, etc... check profile for allergies)

1 food item

A letter set (2 sheets of stationery w/ matching envelope)

5 different sheets of note/memo paper

A handmade item

1 pen (can be an advertising pen, gel pen, artist pen, decorative pen)

10 used postage stamps

1 unused forever stamp

1 cling stamp

1 ATC (Artist Trading Cards, they are for trading!)

Ephemera (book pages, maps, tickets, foreign languages, ect)

1 piece of fabric at least 4x4 inches

3 - 4x6 decorative recipe cards

2 recipes on decorative recipe cards

3 scrap pieces of decorative paper (at least ATC size)

1 small gift bag

1 fridge magnet

1 keychain

5 buttons

1 sheet of 30 address labels with your partners address

1 souvenir from where you live

A Valentine item

A profile based gift

What to do:

Choose three different things that are on the list and send to your partner by the deadline. They must be different - example: DO NOT send 3 bookmarks. This does not count. And no, a handmade bookmark DOES NOT count as 2 items. This is not a profile based swap, it is senders choice, but do check your partners profile, as you may have something that your partner will love!

Newbies welcome with a well filled profile, including a full first and last name on address. Must have logged into swapbot within 3 days of partners being assigned, or you will be dropped. No unexplained low ratings (this swap is for newbies and established swappers, not return flakers.) If you have any overdue swaps on your dashboard you will be dropped. USA only. These rules apply to ALL swappers. I take my job as a host serious and reserve the right to ban anyone.

I will angel only AFTER you have tried to contact your partner and have rated them a 1, but it is up to you to contact me. Flakers will be called out and banned from all future swaps.

If anyone would like to help angel, I would appreciate it! please comment below or message me :)

NEWBIES please read: Partners will be assigned 1 day after the last day to sign up for the swap, the first of the month. Partners are assigned using an automatic computer system. Be sure to log into swap-bot within 3 days of partners being assigned, or you will be dropped from the swap, also be sure to come back after the first of the month to see whom your partner is, by clicking the See the partners you send to button in the tan box on the top right of the screen.

Hi! Newbie here, I'm just wondering, is it considered bad form to do more than three? Is there a max that I should avoid going above? I am excited to do this, but at the same time I don't want to cause anyone to feel bad if I put in more than the three. Just wondering what a good rule of thumb is, this is my first swap like this. Thanks so much!

Hi @freyja3120 welcome to swap bot! You are more than welcome to send extras, but it is not required or expected. Don't feel like you have to send more than 3, but if you want to, feel free!

freyja3120 01/19/2015 #

I can angel if you need me.

AllyZoldos 02/ 1/2015 #

I had a quick question, how do I find out which person is sending to me? I've already done a few swaps, but I haven't figured that part out yet.

Tiffaknee 02/ 2/2015 #

@AllyZoldos you can click on the swap link, and in the corner where it says, "Rate your partner and coordinator" is where you can see who is sending to you.

AllyZoldos 02/ 4/2015 #

Thanks! @Tiffaknee
